2020 Youth Arts Impact Grant
Grants to organizations that produce meaningful cultural and arts experiences for Philadelphia’s youth.
In response to the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the impact it is having on the arts community, the Philadelphia Cultural Fund has suspended the 2020 Youth Arts Enrichment Grant (YAE) and will redirect the funds from that program ($200,000) to more broadly support small and midsized organizations that are providing meaningful cultural and arts experiences for Philadelphia’s youth.
- Upon receipt of funds from the City of Philadelphia, grants will be given to small and mid-sized organizations, with budgets under $2 million, that could be most threatened during this crisis
- Grants will be given to organizations that had either started or submitted a 2020 Youth Arts Enrichment Grant application.
- This redeployment will provide funding to more organizations than what would have been possible through the YAE Grant program. Rather than 10-12 organizations each receiving a YAE grant of up to $20,000, 37 organizations will each receive a Youth Arts Impact Grant of $5,410.
